Rezension bezieht sich auf: Take That - Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
By the time this group started on their successful career, I had given up on music radio, but there is some music that you can't avoid hearing, even if you want to. So it was that I eventually realized that Take That made some great music. They never made it in America, though they might have done had they stayed together a bit longer. Gary Barlow was the lead singer and primary songwriter but his subsequent solo career has been much less successful - unlike Robbie Williams, one of the other group members, who has become a hugely popular solo singer.
Take That had eight British number one hits including Back for good, which gave them an American top ten hit a few months before they disbanded. Their other UK number ones were Pray, Relight my fire (a cover of a Dan Hartman song featuring Lulu as guest vocalist), Babe, Everything changes, Sure, Never forget and How deep is your love (a Bee Gees cover). They had several other UK top ten hits including covers of Could it be magic (Barry Manilow) and It only takes a minute (Tavares) with the former featuring Robbie Williams as lead singer - a rarity on Take That recordings.
If you buy this because Robbie Williams was a group member, you may be disappointed since he rarely sings lead. I, on the other hand, you are looking for simple, mainstream pop music, superbly performed, you might enjoy the music of Take That.
